St. Paul Oktoberfest

Friday, September 9, 2022 - Saturday, September 10, 2022

St. Paul Oktoberfest is back on the beautiful grounds of the Germanic-American Institute. Just like the Munich original, we celebrate in September when the weather is better!

Oktoberfest is synonymous with beer, and this year, we will have an even larger selection than ever. The iconic Paulaner is imported directly from Munich and our local brewer, Utepils, is based in Minneapolis. We’ll also feature an array of foods, from favorite German fare like Gerhard’s bratwurst and Aki’s pretzels to barbecue and more. With non-stop entertainment and fun for the whole family, it’s a two-day celebration of German food, beer, and culture!

Friday, September 9 | 4–10 PM
Saturday, September 10 | 10 AM–10 PM
